    I totally agree about direction of fist pump and tone as well. I hate it when my kids..and they have, get up is someone’s face…even if that someone deserved it. I do however disagree that the pros don’t do it to the oppositions face. Novak in particular not only gives a fist pump, but the look and the I am number one finger signal. I have seen Rafa also aggressive fist pump in opposition direction. The only one who keeps it quiet (most of the time) is Roger

      Good points Pam… There are some pros on the tour that direct it towards their opponent and it usually does not go over very well.

    Great video theam . I think it is so important in the juniors, to not be in your face with the fist pump.

    Fantastic subject! Love the Towards/Away point. Would love to see my female players pump themselves up a little more (in the appropriate way and at the appropriate time – of course).
